Bug Description

Ubuntu 11.04
Ubiquity 2.6.10

During the installation of Ubuntu during the operation "Packages to be removed are determined" the message "Installation program is crashed" appears. Afterward Ubuntu is started in the installation environment.

Always when I install Ubuntu the failure appears.

If I reboot the system, Ubuntu starts from the harddisk and it seems so that Ubuntu works without failures.

I have packed the files syslog and partman because I can only one file attach to this report ...
